ChronosHub Partners with Qatar National Library to Streamline APC Payments for Research Institutions

Copenhagen, Denmark - ChronosHub is excited to announce a strategic collaboration with Qatar National Library (QNL) to enhance the efficiency of article processing charge (APC) payments for affiliated research institutions in Qatar.  

Through this partnership, Qatar National Library will leverage ChronosHub's platform to streamline and expedite the APC payment process, providing researchers and administrators in Qatar with a seamless experience. Centralizing APC payments through ChronosHub's platform simplifies financial transactions, reduces administrative burdens, and ensures timely and transparent processing for researchers publishing in open-access journals. This will free up valuable time and resources for researchers and administrators, allowing them to focus more on their research and less on administrative tasks.

"By leveraging our platform, Qatar National Library and affiliated institutions can simplify financial transactions, reduce administrative overhead, and focus their resources on advancing research and innovation. We look forward to a fruitful partnership benefiting researchers, institutions, and the broader scholarly community."
